Top 10 Cities CIO Pay
Top 10 List – The top ten cities CIO pay have been identified in Janco’s 2015 Mid-Year IT Salary Survey. In the top four cities, CIOs are paid over $200,000 a year. That is the good news, but the bad news is that the cost of living including housing is very high in all of those markets.
All of these cities have a few things in common. First there are several market drivers including:
- Large base population in the immediate metro area
- An excellent university system close by that provides resources to the IT market
- Healthy business economy
- Large population of IT professionals that organizations can draw from
For IT professionals each of these markets is a place to be. This is where new technologies are going to be implemented.
